Origin Story

Mauricio Arturo Salaverria Caceres

This is the eighth year we are featuring coffee from Mauricio "Moe" Salaverria's farm, Finca Himalaya. Moe owns and operates several other small coffee farms under the banner, Divisadero Café Farms. Coffees from these farms often place well in coffee competitions such as Cup of Excellence. Finca Himalaya has been in the Salaverria Lagos family since 1875! Moe cultivates many different varieties of coffee and processes them using a variety of methods, many of which we have featured in the past. This year we have a Bourbon variety lot that was processed using the honey method of processing. The Bourbon variety is a naturally occurring mutation of Typica from the island of Bourbon, now called Réunion, and is one of the most genetically significant contributors to non-native Ethiopian cultivars.

This coffee was processed at the Divisadero micro-mill located on Finca Villa Gallicia, one of Moe’s other nearby farms. Using the honey method of processing where trace amounts of the fruit mucilage are left to dry on the beans, Moe achieved sweet and balanced flavors that don’t overpower the inherent qualities of the Bourbon variety. The beans were placed on raised beds to slow dry on an area of the farm that receives a constant cool breeze, slowing down the drying process and increasing the intensity of the coffee’s flavor.
